STRIVE Scientific Workforce Diversity (SWD) Committee Virtual Workshop
“Path to Enhancing Scientific Workforce Diversity”

During this workshop, members of the scientific community will discuss strategies for fostering diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) among NICHD’s grantees and trainees, as well as in the broader scientific workforce.

Workshop discussions will build on lessons learned from last month’s listening sessions, which were hosted by the SWD Committee to better understand how NICHD can improve DEIA among its investigators and trainees, including those from groups typically underrepresented in health, biomedical, and biobehavioral research.

Click here to register.

Individuals who need reasonable accommodations to participate in the workshop should contact Carly Sullivan at csullivan@palladianpartners.com at least 5 business days before the event.

We hope you will join us for this important conversation. If you have any questions, please email us at STRIVE_NICHD@nih.gov.
